A selection of current and future events from the Whistler Forum...
A Celebration on the Launch of Patriot Hearts
John Furlong OC, has been described as a Sports Hero, Nation Builder and the Ultimate Crisis Manager. Known for his masterful storytelling and innovative leadership style, he continues to inspire, regaling audiences with the many remarkable and fascinating untold stories behind the Games.
Many said it was a vision too far, urging him to set the goals at a more attainable level. Furlong refused and through an exhaustive ten year journey went on to deliver, what have now been recognised by the IOC as, the most successful Winter Games ever.
We are honoured to have John back in Whistler on the first year anniversary of the Games, and to partner with the Whistler Adaptive Sports Program in hosting him in a dinner. There are seats enough for 75 at $100 pp with a charitable tax receipt for $50 and all proceeds going to WASP and the Forum's Leadership Sea to Sky program.
Tickets are available on the WASP website.
Dinner with Forum Friends and Leadership Sea-to-Sky Alumni

He is also Professor Emeritus of Economics at the University of British Columbia, an Officer of the Order of Canada, a member of the National Statistics Council, and a Research Associate of the National Bureau of Economic Research.
John was one of the first guest speakers for Leadership Sea to Sky Cohort I and continues to inspire and inform community leaders around the world with his pioneering work in incorporating social concepts into economic theories of development and growth. His research tracks what makes people happy at home, in their communities and at work, and how government and business can use the information to create happier and more productive communities.
